Tania Deguara brings a wealth of education and social justice activism experience to Destination Dreaming. Tania is currently a Department Head at Ivanhoe Grammar School. Prior to her move to Ivanhoe, Tania was the Round Square Coordinator at Scotch Oakburn College in Launceston, where she was responsible for organising and coordinating student-led local, national and international service projects. Tania has led student trips to India, Cambodia, Thailand, New Zealand, Timor-Leste, England, Canada and USA.
Tania also spent a decade working as a fundraiser, marketer and campaigner for three highly-respected organisations: Amnesty International, Royal Women’s Hospital Foundation and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Realising her passion for social justice activism and global issues was going to need a little assistance she turned towards teaching, believing that young people are the real vehicles for change. Tania first joined Destination Dreaming in 2011, to establish a long-term partnership in Timor Leste for Scotch Oakburn College. In addition to leading programs, Tania has also used her involvement to complete her final project for her Masters in Education, focusing on global partnerships as part of schools’ global education programs.
